Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia 76ers are showing they are more than Allen Iverson. Eric Snow and Derrick Coleman made a handful of big shots down the stretch as the streaking 76ers survived a quiet fourth quarter by Iverson to rally for a 99-93 victory over the Boston Celtics. Philadelphia has won eight straight games, its longest run since winning the first 10 of the 2000-01 season, when it went to the NBA Finals. The 76ers improved to 10-0 at the First Union Center. Iverson scored 27 points but was shut out for the first nine minutes of the fourth quarter. With the Celtics swarming the three-time scoring champion, Snow and Coleman took control of the offense. "I know that a lot (of times) that we put that burden on Allen as far as being our scorer and our leader," Coleman said. "When they're on him and he is having an off night, you got Eric Snow and he's a warrior. You got myself." The Sixers trailed, 92-88, before Snow drove the baseline for a layup with 3:15 left. On the next possession, Iverson tied it with a jumper in traffic, his only hoop of the final period. Boston's Antoine Walker threw away a pass, and Snow countered with a tough driving bank shot that gave Philadelphia the lead for good with 1:50 to go. After Walter McCarty missed a 3-pointer, Snow appeared to be trapped in the lane before finding Coleman, who drilled a 3-pointer for a 97-92 lead with 1:10 remaining. "There was nothing to it," Coleman said. "It was in the flow of the offense. Eric got cut off and he kicked the ball to me and it was up to me to knock the shot down." Snow had 13 points and eight assists despite foul trouble. Coleman scored a season-high 20 points on 6-of-8 shooting as he continues to round into shape following knee surgery. "We had opportunities to score," Snow said. "We just made some shots and our defensive pressure picked up." "I don't think he's nearly in game shape yet, but he's down under 270 (pounds) and he's not having trouble with his surgically repaired knee for the first time in (years), so he's getting in shape," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. Paul Pierce played through foul trouble to score 34 points and Walker added 19, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Celtics, who beat the Sixers at home on November 13 but have lost 14 of the last 18 meetings between the teams. "You can't take anything away from them," Pierce said. "They are at the top of the division and you know they are going to make their run. They played good defense, they got key stops and then got out in transition." Boston eliminated Philadelphia in five games in the first round of last season's playoffs. The intensity of the rivalry has increased over the last two years, and there were three technical fouls called in this game. "It's hard for me to look at a rivalry when (Larry) Bird's not there, or (Kevin) McHale, Chief (Robert Parish), Dennis Johnson or Danny Ainge," Brown said. "Hopefully it's coming back," Iverson said. Pierce was whistled for his fifth foul 21 seconds into the fourth quarter but stayed in the game. His step-back jumper pulled Boston into a 79-79 tie with 9:31 left. Walker threw in a hook and made a steal, and his missed layup was tipped in by Tony Delk to give the Celtics an 86-82 lead with 6:26 to go. Aaron McKie beat the shot clock with a long jumper and Snow returned to hit the tying jumper with 5:28 left. "It was just one of those games where rivals are going at it like a heavyweight fight," Pierce said. The only thing that could stop Pierce in the first half was foul trouble. He scored 21 points as the Celtics maintained control, opening their largest lead at 54-38 on a 3-pointer by McCarty with 2:45 left in the second quarter. But with Pierce on the bench, the Sixers ran off nine straight points, including six by Coleman. Trailing 56-39 at halftime, Philadelphia opened the third quarter with an 11-4 run and caught Boston at 60-60 on Iverson's 3-pointer with 6:41 to play. "I think the most important thing about having Derrick back is the leadership, understanding what you have to do to win basketball games," Iverson said. Keith Van Horn had 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 44 percent (36-of-81) and held a 47-36 edge on the glass. Forward Monty Williams returned from knee surgery and scored seven points in 13 minutes. "I've said along that I liked (our) team a long time ago," Snow said. "I felt we had a deep bench and we were versatile. We have guys who play different positions. When you have coach Brown, a lot of positives can happen." McCarty scored 10 points for the Celts, who shot 42 percent (30-of-71) but made just 7-of-27 3-pointers. From the arc, Walker was 1-of-8 and Pierce 2-of-7.
